"As a first generation Nigerian American raised in Chicago, my love for storytelling began at an early age. I loved reading books and watching movies. Growing up with Nigerian parents culture was heavily instilled in our household. We often watched Nollywood films and I would find myself intrigued by the storylines and life lessons. I have always felt a great responsibility to tell authentic stories to elevate my community and unite humanity"

I am a Dominican-American actress; born in Cheverly, Maryland and raised in Lawrenceville, VA. I knew since age eight, after my first school play, that I wanted to be an actress but being that I came from a small, one stoplight town with little opportunity, I never believed it was possible. It wasn’t until I decided to relocate to Brooklyn, NY, with my family after turning 20 years old to pursue my dreams in the Film and Entertainment Industry. Since then, I hustled up many short films, webseries and feature films roles all throughout New York City.
